Russell Brand has been approached to appear in the fourth Pirates Of The Caribbean movie.
The controversial British comic is up for the role of Jonathan, the younger brother of Johnny Depp’s popular Captain Jack Sparrow, as part of a $ 10 million deal with Disney, according to Britain’s The Sun.
“There couldn’t be a role more perfectly suited,” a Hollywood source spills to reporters with the newspaper.
“There’s a lot of Jack Sparrow in his mannerisms and behavior. Depp’s accent isn’t a million miles away from Russell’s either. Russell joining the Sparrows alongside Johnny and Keith Richards as their dad will complete the ultimate on-screen pirate family.”
